Hydroponic Production Systems
South Africa

 

Greener Solutions provides proven commercial-scale hydroponic production systems:

Primarily we provide one of four different hydroponic systems:

Drip Culture Hydroponic Systems:

The first is a typical drip culture system used very widely internationally, making use of various media such as rockwool, coconut coir, sand or similar growing media. The medium is contained in the form of slabs or pots/bags and is provided with a hydroponic nutrient solution via a regulated drip system. This type of system is typically used for fruiting crops such as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and similar in greenhouses, and can be a drain-to-waste or recycled closed system with UV water sterilisation.

 
 
 

 

Recycling Hydroponic Systems:

The second system is a recycling hydroponic system called NGS, developed in Spain. The system is a patented multilayer trough system designed for use in warmer climates, and is highly productive.

The design is such that the water does not require sterilisation before being recycled safely. Crops capable of being produced in this system are lettuce, strawberries, herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers and many others. Different systems are available for leafy crops, large crops and strawberries.

Specialised motorised systems are available for leafy crops and baby leaf production. See NGS for more information.

 
 

 
 
 

 

NFT - Nutrient Film Technique Hydroponic Systems:

The third system is NFT - Nutrient Film Technique. This is a specialised automatic growing system most suited to highly professional growers.

Our supplier of this system is Danvan of Denmark, who have provided projects from Europe to various other countries all over the world. It is suited to lettuce and herb production in a highly specialised and productive greenhouse environment. We are the dealers for Danvan in Southern Africa.

See Danvan for more information.

 
 

 

Gravel Bed Recirculating Hydroponic Systems:

The fourth system we supply is a gravel bed recirculating system, suitable for lettuce, herbs, spinach and similar crops. This system is most suitable for entry level producers under shadenet structures. The fertigated water is captured at the bottom end of gravel beds and is recirculated to the top end, for sub-irrigation in the root zone. The advantages of this system are that it is relatively easy to manage and is less expensive. However, it is not as productive and is more vulnerable to disease.
